Sticky Fingers is the ninth studio album by English rock band The Rolling Stones, originally released in April 1971 via Rolling Stones Records.

Pieced together from outtakes and much-labored-over songs, Sticky Fingers manages to have a loose, ramshackle ambience that belies both its origins and the dark undercurrents of the songs. It's a weary, drug-laden album - well over half the songs explicitly mention drug use, while the others merely allude to it - that never fades away, but it barely keeps afloat.

Apart from the classic opener, "Brown Sugar" (a gleeful tune about slavery, interracial sex, and lost virginity, not necessarily in that order), the long workout "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and the mean-spirited "Bitch," Sticky Fingers is a slow, bluesy affair, with a few country touches thrown in for good measure.

The laid-back tone of the album gives ample room for new lead guitarist Mick Taylor to stretch out, particularly on the extended coda of "Can't You Hear Me Knocking".

The key to the album isn't the instrumental interplay - although that is terrific - it's the utter weariness of the songs. "Wild Horses" is their first non-ironic stab at a country song, and it is a beautiful, heart-tugging masterpiece. Similarly, "I Got The Blues" is a ravished, late-night classic that ranks among their very best blues. "Sister Morphine" is a horrifying overdose tale, and "Moonlight Mile", with Paul Buckmaster's grandiose strings, is a perfect closure: sad, yearning, drug-addled, and beautiful.

With its offhand mixture of decadence, roots music, and outright malevolence, Sticky Fingers set the tone for the rest of the decade for the Stones.

The album topped the charts in the US, UK, Australia, Canada and many other locations on it's initial release. It received universal critical acclaim and is regarded as one of the greatest albums in popular music of all time. In 2003 the album was listed at #63 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Check out the album singles: “Brown Sugar”: “Bitch”; “Wild Horses” and “Can't You Hear Me Knocking”.

This LP record is reissued on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl featuring the 2015 remastered audio, with printed insert, pressed in Europe.
